I can not say for sure but you could try contacting radio bolivia in sweden who was the one who brought the movie to sweden and in the presence of the director himself. I was there at the opening in stockholm, SWEDEN.

Go to their website and ask via email

Click the "Contactenos" link in their menu. I know they speak english and spanish so just email them.

Good luck
